Hey all - I’m catching up through emails and just found this forum! Connected with @AndrewLamb at GOSH 2022 in Panama and discussed our distributed manufacturing efforts among some folks in the GOSH community - we published initial concepts from our meetings here.
I wanted to share that may be useful here (or not) is on the software end.
We’ve been using SurveyStack (surveystack.io, an open source project that we develop) for documentation, QA/QC, directions and product tracking to manufacture our reflectometer for a few years. It’s flexible and can connect directly to hardware via UART / Serial connection or over a network. We also use it for running our soil and food testing lab. The Beneficial Bio folks also developed some surveys for their processes. As a program, it’s very (very!) flexible in what it can do!
Anyway, just wanted to offer it as a resource if it makes sense for other projects. Happy to support anyone interested or provide more info, just holler.
